Learner-centered Assessment in Your Language Classroom
Free workshop: Pre-Registration Required
About this Event
Do you want your students to be autonomous and responsible for their own performance in your language classes? This free half-day workshop explores a variety of ways to support your students with learner-centered assessment, including self- and peer-assessments. You will learn about the advantages of learner-centered assessment and how to incorporate it in language teaching. Through hands-on activities, you will actively engage with creating and reflecting on self- and peer-assessments. You will walk away with practical ideas you can use in your teaching immediately. The workshop is ideal for those who work with English learners in public schools or community language teaching programs.
The session is facilitated by Dr. Jiyoon Lee of the University of Maryland, Baltimore County (UMBC). An experienced teacher and teacher educator, she conducts research on speaking assessment, learner-centered assessment, and language assessment literarcy. She has lectured and given professional development workshops nationally and internationally. Dr. Lee currently teaches courses on linguistics and langauge assessment to pre- and in-service teachers in UMBC’s Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL) program.
